Ever wondered where the sayings we commonly use originate?Sometimes the things we say, if we really think about it, make absolutely no logical sense.Take what I’m saying as read but not with a pinch of salt, I think this book will be a sight for sore eyes and will warm the cockles of your heart.This book won’t cost you an arm and a leg and you won’t have to push the boat out to buy it and I’m not trying to pull the wool over your eyes as there are no smoke and mirrors here. If you like idioms it might be right up your alley and I’ll stick my neck out and say you’ll find it top drawer.Hang fire you say, well, this kind of book only comes once in a blue moon so keep your hair on, don’t flip your lid and remember every cloud has a silver lining even if it’s not cloud nine. So don’t drop a clanger and cut me some slack, buy this book and I guarantee you I’ll have you in stitches.

Nick Smethurst is a proud dad of two boys, Jake and Isaac.


Raised in Manchester, he is a proud Northerner and likes to believe he has a good sense of humour, his friends would disagree!


Nick never intended on writing a book but the Covid lockdowns in the UK allowed him to start posting on social media about one of his passions, Idioms/sayings/phrases and their origins.


Nick quickly realised he wasn’t on his own with his fascination and after posting well over 300 of these ‘origin’ stories he gained a large following of people who would get involved by posing new ones to Nick.


After several calls for him to collect all the stories into one document Nick decided to see if any publishers would be interested in working with him to create the book you have in your hands now.


Nick’s idiom journey still continues on social media and he has hopes to bring you the second instalment…watch this space.
